4/5 Good

Traveled with partner
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The property is clean and I would consider it above average for this star level. We had a slight issue with our check in but it wasn’t really their fault, more on my bank’s end, but we were able to resolve quickly and easily. We discovered our remote control was missing and the management team was readily available and we had one within minutes. The staff are just so nice.

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Rude check- in experience with an older lady. Rooms and bath are filthy. The room smelled horrible. Blanket looks like someone got murdered on it. Very sketchy neighborhood.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Basic motel room
This is a bare bones motel with useful appliances (fridge, microwave, coffeemaker). Didn't use TV so I don't know about TV reception or service.
